Natalie Portman is one busy woman. Over the past few years, she’s starred in an Academy Award-nominated movie (that would be the Black Swan, for those playing at home), won an Oscar for said film at said awards ceremony, was the leading lady of several other flicks (including Thor, with ex-Home and Away hottie Chris Hemsworth), got engaged, announced her pregnancy, got hitched, had a baby, and filmed Thor 2, a follow-up to the smash-hit superhero movie. Phew. Just bear with us for a moment as we catch our breath...
As well as juggling her many hats as an actress/director/producer/mum, Natalie has also been making a name for herself as a style icon. Not only has the in-demand starlet graced the covers of numerous magazines – including Elle UK, Marie Claire US and Vogue US – but she’s also a brand ambassador for Dior, a paparazzi favourite on the red carpet, a frequent front-rower at Fashion Week and has even designed a line of chic vegan footwear!
If we were to describe Natalie’s signature style, we’d say that it’s equal parts romantic, sophisticated, classic and cool. The glamorous actress is not overly daring when it comes to fashion, but her sartorial choices, though often understated, never fail to make her standout from the crowd. And that’s what we love about Natalie: she knows what works for her and sticks with it. While Natalie loves feminine tones like pink, red and purple, the actress tends to gravitate towards timeless hues such as black, white and navy.
Case in point? The navy Christian Dior number she sported during her appearance on Late Night With David Letterman, which she paired with Dior slingback pumps and Harry Winston jewellery. Natalie’s look is ridiculously easy to recreate at home – all you need is a similar dress (or skirt-and-shirt combo), suitable bag (for day or night), black heels (or flats, if you’d prefer), blingin’ earrings, and you’re pretty much ready to go.
We’ve simplified the steps to stealing Natalie Portman’s style even further by putting together four ensembles that are oh-so-similar to the A-lister’s actual look. Aren’t we helpful?
